About Me

Hello! My name is Torin Boernke, I am from Marshfield, Wisconsin, and a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse. Organisms and their complexity has always fascinated me and is the reason I am working towards a major in Biomedical Sciences and a Chemistry minor. This website was a project assigned as part my Organismal Biology class, the reason I chose to study the Organism Eciton hamatum was because it is poisonous and a nomadic ant colony! I hope by reviewing my website you are as surprised and interested by these ants as I am. When I am not studying for school I enjoy doing outside activities such as hunting, hiking, or running.


For any questions you might have please email me at:
